Wondering how hold-over works? New to Hunter Field Target? Philip gives a “hold-over 101” explanation of how to use this technique with a mil-dot scope to hit your target at different ranges.
In this episode of the podcast I interview three-time national champion Scott Hull on his tips for setting up a scope on a Hunter Division rifle.
Scott talks about his favorite scope, mill dots, using ballistic programs, and bracketing.
Scott is an engineer by training and he brings his approach to setup and figuring out a reliable way to range with the limitations of a 12x scope.

Tom Holland has been shooting competitively since he was in high school. He holds indoor national and world records with a crossbow.
He bought a Benjamin Marauder to get into field target and has since expanded his airgun collection to include a Steyr and RAW TM1000, but he has gone back to the Marauder as his main gun, placing second at the 2016 Pyramid Air Cup with it.
In this episode Tom talks about his development as a shooter and how eventually ended up in WFTF shooting his Marauder. In talking about the gear and guns, we cover the basic WFTF rules. We discuss getting into field target on a budget, how Tom has modified his Benjamin Marauder with a regulator from airgunexporter.com, scope choices, and advantages of a regulated air rifle.
Tom talks about the challenges of shooting a 12 foot-pound energy rifle, pellet selection, the rules, and some basics of reading the wind.
Hope you enjoy the episode.
